Hey fediverse admins, have you made sure your instance is being counted by https://the-federation.info/ ? I love being able to respond with that stats site URL when people say "nobody uses federated social networks" elsewhere on the web :) It now counts nodes running any one of 36 server apps, across 9 federation protocols, including #OStatus, and #ActivityPub, reporting about 2 1/2 million users.
@strypey "Last month active users: 553402" is more than I thought! 😃
@kensanata keep in mind that even really active users like me sometimes don't login for a month (I won't be over the month from tomorrow). It doesn't mean they've abandoned their account. Also keep in mind that I have a bunch of testing accounts on different platforms, which I don't login to often, and I doubt I'm the only one.
@strypey Not logging in for a month – wow!
Would be great if they could all share node data somehow ...
@selea huh? How does this relate?
It does not, it was sent to the wrong person 😢
@selea ah! make sense now :) It would be great if all the monitoring sites could share node data somehow ...
@strypey yes ... fimidi.com is counted ✅
@zlg @strypey Yeah, it's a bit shit in performance. The reason is I decided to rewrite the crappy backend in Feb to more modern code, but I was struck for time, so I did a hasty job with the #GraphQL API - which was the first time I used GraphQL.
It worked fine until I added #ActivityPub platforms like #Mastodon ;) Now the node list just kills the browser. I just need to get around to rewriting the node list. I don't think paging is needed, it's the rendering of the list which dies imho.
@zlg @strypey Logged a bug now: https://github.com/thefederationinfo/the-federation.info/issues/176
